COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The Harvest Hope Food Bank that serves 20 counties in central South Carolina is celebrating a $25,000 contribution from the Walmart Foundation.

Harvest Hope executive director Denise Holland said in a release Thursday the organization will use the grant to provide about 125,000 meals for those in need of food support.

Holland said Harvest Hope plans to use the money to expand services to anyone in the active-duty military who may need assistance, as well as military veterans and their families.

She says the food bank has assisted up to 12,000 veterans and military-related families annually.

The food bank serves counties in the central portion of the state, as well as the Pee Dee region in the northeast and the area surrounding Greenville in the northwest.
